My partner and I rented a canoe for 1 hour ride, our ride was great and the attendant at the dock was very helpful. We also brought our 2 small dogs in the canoe which was a lot of fun

Excellent service, relaxed and easy-going. The canal is a perfect spot in the city for an hour of canoing and is a great location for walking along Dow's Lake or the Arboretum afterwards... or nearby restaurants on the patio or Preston's cafés. Lots to do nearby.

It was ok. Rented a large canoe for 3 people but they only allowed two paddles per boat which was annoying.

The service was polite and the equipment was standard. Very pleasant overall as the price is awesome with the groupon. Otherwise too pricey for me to go regularly.

Had a great time with the pedal boat we rented. We did, however, have to wait nearly an hour to register because of a rather large group of day camp kids. They should have formed two lines to service both a large group and individuals efficiently. Still had fun though!

Year-round, Dows Lake Pavilion offer respite from the indoors with scenic views of the Rideau Canal—a UNESCO World Heritage Site— and plenty of recreational activities to choose from. All summer, guests can take advantage of tranquility in the heart of the city as they meander along the waterway in a canoe, kayak, or pedal boat, while in winter, the pavilion provides access to one of the world's longest skating rinks outdoors for visitors to enjoy a unique skating experience. Three restaurants in the pavilion help guests refuel in between activities.
